7 Down… and counting

What were you doing at 3am this morning?

Me, oh, I was just very awake thanks to my 2 1/2 year old. He awoke (I think, not sure if all this happened in his sleep…) at 1:30 this morning and began to talk very loudly about completely random things. Honestly, I can’t even really remember what he said, but I do remember it was loud and kinda funny. Funny until I saw that it was 1:30 and I knew there was no shot at me going back to sleep. Sigh.

What did I do you ask??

Well, after I laid in be for almost an hour praying to go back to sleep, I decided it was a lost cause and got up. I went downstairs and cranked out this quilt top:

Oh, I love it!

I rarely use brown, it’s just not a color I gravitate to. I have made an entirely brown quilt before (once), but it worked for me.

But this, oh I’m smitten.

And, today was such a perfect day out that I just had to take some photos of my growing pile.

This is what 7 quilt tops and 5 backings looks like, in case you were wondering. Been working on these since April, yes April. I knew that there would be little to no sewing time this summer, and for once I tried planning ahead!

Now, lets see if I actually get these finished when I need to….

  1. glad to hear it’s not just me who can’t go back to sleep after the kids wake up in the middle of the night. Good for you for being productive. It always makes me feel better about that lost sleep if something at least got accomplished! I love the quilt top!
